Soccer, soccer, soccer . . . . . . Vamos Argentina!!!!!!
Sister Evans and me with some of the Zanni Family
Sooooooooooooooooooooo, if you were not aware, the WORLD CUP has been going on for about a month now. And soccer is kind of HUGE here. It has been quite the experience! A lot of times we have had to reduce our schedules so that we are studying safely in our apartment during the games. Argentina was blessed to have gone to the FINALS. That is pretty big! And exciting! And noisy...haha, a lot of car horns have been going on lately. And t-shirts and flags have been sold at every street corner. Haha, crazy stuff. Well. Argentina didn't win the world cup BUT it has been about 20 years since we have even made it to the finals...so we are still feeling pretty proud. :)
Well, more then all of the World Cup stuff, this week was good! We had a meeting with the new president (Presidente Zanni) and his family on Tuesday. MAN they are awesome! I love them a lot already!!!!!! There are SEVEN kids in this great family. One is on the mission in Taiwan but all of the others are there. It is fun to have a big family around!
Other awesome and wonderful thing! Our investigator Alejandra went to church again! And one of her daughters went with her too!!!!! :) I just love her so much! We had a lesson with them on Saturday and she started to cry. She told us that she had been reading in the Book of Mormon (she read about 5 pages!!!!) right before she went to sleep. She said that she has been having a lot of problems with not being able to sleep for a long time now but when she read from the Book of Mormon she just felt peace and was able to sleep. She woke up surprised that she hadn't had problems that night. She told us all of that and STARTED TO CRY. YES! Haha, that is the Spirit right there working with her and helping her to gain a testimony of the truthfulness of that wonderful and important book. Sooooo, she is just awesome. AND she excepted a baptism date. Buuuuuuuuut, she isn't married....and she has to do that first. Sooo, we are still working on that. :)
In other news, this week is transfers! These past six weeks have seriously flown by sooooooooo fast. And yesterday I received the call to be a trainer again. Tomorrow I go to Rosario to get my newbie!!! :) I have had a great time with Hermana Evans and am going to miss her but the good thing is that I will see her again in the States. :)
LOVE YOU ALL! I know Jesus Christ lives and is here for us every step of the way!
